On November 16, 2009, hundreds of current and former attorneys, staff members, and friends gathered in Washington, D.C., to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Environment and Natural Resources Division (ENRD or the Division) at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). As an alumnus of ENRD, I was tremendously honored to address the group. I began working for the Division on October 9, 1979. It was my first job out of law school, and I could not have been more excited. Nor could I have been more amazed that I had, what I considered, my dream job. And so it was equally marvelous to return to ENRD and share with them the 100-year history of the Division.
